Wanderers are in EFL Trophy action on Tuesday evening when they take on Shrewsbury Town at the Montgomery Waters Meadow.

Last time out in this competition, Wanderers suffered a narrow 3-2 reverse against Sky Bet League One side Crewe Alexandra at the University of Bolton Stadium with Ryan Delaney and Shaun Miller getting on the scoresheet in early September.

Pre-Match Quotes:

Ian Evatt: ‘“I will play a team I think is strong enough to win the game. I’m not sacrificing it. This won’t be lambs to the slaughter, I have firm belief in our younger players.

“Ronan (Darcy) will have a chance, for definite, Adam Senior, people who deserve a chance and have trained really well.

“They have experience of first team football last season and probably got thrust into the limelight a bit sooner than they should have been. But it will stand them in good stead for nights like this.

“They have been banging on the door for an opportunity and now they will get one.

“I hope they do well, I really do, because they are good lads, great talents, and they will be big players for this club in the years to come.

“First and foremost, they have to go out there at Shrewsbury and show us and the rest of the footballing world what they are about.”

Stuart Taylor (Assistant Manager): “It’s another game in a busy schedule and it’s a great opportunity for us to go and give the young kids a run-out and have them get experience just as we did last season. Give them an opportunity to go and play and express themselves.

“The only difference this season is that they’re not going to play in front of a crowd, which is disappointing because that’s part of their development, to see how they can handle the crowd and experience that.

“Unfortunately for them they’re not going to be able to experience that this year but certainly pulling on the jersey and playing in the first team, it’s a great opportunity for them.”

Team News:

Gethin Jones is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after picking up an ankle injury at the Keepmoat Stadium, while Lloyd Isgrove and Shaun Miller continue their road to recovery.

Players like Adam Senior and Ronan Darcy are set to get a run out as the Wanderers Head Coach will pick a team that will look to overcome The Shrews on their own patch.

Bookies Odds:

Bolton win: 21/10

Draw: 11/5

Newport win: 12/10

Correct as of 6/10/2020 (9am) on skybet.com

Form:

Wanderers come into the tie buoyed by their first victory of the Sky Bet League Two campaign against Harrogate at the weekend. Frontmen Eoin Doyle and Nathan Delfouneso opened up their accounts too to give Ian Evatt’s men a lift ahead of a busy October schedule.

Town beat Newcastle United U21s 3-0 earlier in the competition but are set to ring the changes ahead of tonight’s clash. They have drawn their last two league encounters so will be aiming to get back to winning ways to boost their league campaign.

Last time out:

The two clubs last met at the University of Bolton Stadium in December 2019 where they shared a 1-1 draw.

They have played each other 24 times in all competitions with Wanderers edging the head to head encounters with 13 victories to their name against Town’s 7.

Odds seem to be in Newport's favour according to the article.
But we're playing Sam Rickett's lot who will also be fielding fringe players - but in his case it's a top FB from the A league and promising Czech midfielder on loan from Brentford.
Suspect it's going to be very hard work for our lads.

The 15 year old sub is ALF's second cousin - shame he didn't get on.
Glad the fringe players showed willing - biggest disappoint of the night was Josh Vela.

Report: Shrewsbury Town 2-1 Bolton Wanderers


A much-changed Bolton Wanderers side lost narrowly to Shrewsbury Town in the second group game of the EFL Trophy.

Adam Senior’s first goal for the club set up an exciting finale as the visitors fought their way back into the contest after Town put themselves two goals to the good.

But despite being in control for the second-half Sam Ricketts’ men held on for victory.

Ian Evatt made nine changes from the side that beat Harrogate Town at the weekend as Wanderers travelled to Montgomery Waters Meadow.

Liam Gordon, George Taft, Brandon Comley, Jak Hickman, Tom White, Ronan Darcy, Arthur Gnahoua, Adam Senior and Finlay Lockett came into the starting XI.

Amongst the substitutes were Max Conway, Matt Tweedley and Regan Riley who have been in the club’s academy since the age of 8.

Wanderers had to defend a dangerous free-kick early on when White cleared former Wanderer Josh Vela’s set-piece.

Vela was in the thick of the action and got a lengthy telling off by the referee for a late challenge on Gordon in the middle of the park.

Gordon put a superb ball from the left-hand side into the box after White stole possession, but the ball was cleared before it could reach the head of Gnahoua who was shaping up to head it past Harry Burgoyne.

The hosts took the lead after 19 minutes when Ryan Barnett intercepted Taft’s loose pass across goal to steer the ball beyond Billy Crellin.

Burgoyne pulled off a stunning save the prevent Wanderers from earning an immediate equaliser. Taft released Gordon the left with a great ball over the top, the wing back’s pinpoint cross found Gnahoua at the far-post, but his effort was kept out at point blank range.

Wanderers earned a penalty in the 27th minute when Gnahoua was scythed down in the box by a combination of Aaron Pierre and Scott Golbourne. White stepped up to take the spot kick but could only hit the foot of the Burgoyne’s right hand stick.

Vela was shown a yellow card just after the half-hour mark when he fouled White, who after a lengthy period of treatment had to be withdrawn from the game.

Riley came on to replace him for only his second appearance in a Wanderers shirt.

Cummings increased the hosts’ lead when he fired low beyond Crellin after a stray pass lost Wanderers possession.

Wanderers made their second change at the break with Reiss Greenidge coming on for Delaney, while Vela was withdrawn by the hosts for Josh Daniels.

Cummings blazed over the bar from close range after being presented with a loose ball just outside Wanderers’ box.

Wanderers pulled a goal back on 64 minutes through Bolton-born Senior. The defender headed the ball over the line after Greenidge nodded the ball into the danger area from Darcy’s curling free-kick.

Mascoll was Wanderers’ third and final change when he came on for Lockett on 69 minutes.

Gnahoua missed another glorious chance to get on the scoresheet when a Greenidge header into the box was met by the striker who could only nod wide of goal.

Crellin stood firm to deny Barnett as the Shrews tried to get their momentum back.

Taft headed wide after he was the first to get to Darcy’s free-kick with Wanderers looking hunrgy to grab an equaliser.

With a minute to go, Hickman blazed over after the ball found its way to him at a tight angle inside the box.

Mascoll hit over from close range deep into injury time as Wanderers tried in vain to get a deserved equaliser.

Wanderers can consider themselves very unlucky not to have got something from the game after being well on top for the second half.


Wanderers: Crellin, Hickman, Gordon, White (Riley 37), Taft ©️, Delaney (Greenidge 46), Senior, Lockett (Mascoll 69), Comley, Darcy, Gnahoua,

Unused Subs: Alexander, Conway, Tweedley, Le Fondre.


Shrewsbury: Burgoyne, Fossey, Walker, Pierre, Golbourne, High, Vela (Daniels 46), Zamburek, Tracey (Millar 80), Cummings, Barnett.

Unused Subs: Gregory, Caton, Goss, Love, Rowland.
